The Listening Booth, Live Music Venue, Entertainment, Lewes, Delaware, Delaware Beaches, Don’t Tell Comedy

First time at The Listening Booth located at 35000 Midway Outlet Drive, Suite 218. Basically it is on the side of the Polo outlet as you go into the bathroom area. At the Surfside Tanger Outlet. It is a small venue, a stage, and they do serve drinks. 302-313-1718.

It is described as a haven for musicians and culture appreciators. The Listening Booth now needs more space and this coming Friday is the last performance at this particular address as they are moving up a mile up the road. Check them on Social Media.

This is their Schedule:

This past Saturday enjoyed Don’t Tell Comedy. This is a secret comedy show. Once you are on their email they will send you the where and when in your area. I know it is not very clear but that’s the whole purpose. A surprise. 4 comedians took the stage. Lots of laughter and all had their own funny bone.

The show was a couple of hours long. Then to a late dinner in Downtown Rehoboth Beach.

Friends and laughter. 😂

The Surfing Crab, Restaurant, Crab House, Lewes, Delaware, Delaware Beaches

Haha starting with bread pudding first. Some of us can afford to do that and others have to exercise restraint.

We were at The Surfing Crab located at 16723 Coastal Highway. In Lewes, Delaware. Going north past the town on Lewes.

A craving for crabs is what we had. We called their telephone 302-644-4448 to reserve extra large crabs to be eaten there. You can also have take out. Surfing Crab has a full menu with really good food, as well.

Do you like hush puppies? An order of hush puppies , of course. Sophia made a sauce with Ketchup and Vinegar too.


Then those enormous crabs made an entrance. They were so sweet. We started picking, talking, a few beers and only took home 3.

I dipped the meat in vinegar. Others like butter too but vinegar was it last night.

Picking crab for me is relaxing and very social.

These are my first crabs of 2024. At The Surfing Crab the atmosphere is casual and fun. Great service by the way.

Check them on Social Media….At the moment they close Monday and Tuesday.???

Matt’s Fish Camp, Restaurant, Lewes, Delaware, SoDel Concepts, Delaware Beaches

Matt’s Fish Camp in Lewes located at 34401 Tenley Ct. served a great lunch on a rainy day. Weather gets cold we go for comfort food.

Check this out ?

They usually have Deviled Eggs on the menu but on this day they raised the bar up a notch. These ones had this morsel of well seasoned chicken on top. If you see them, please get them. I saw these two ladies having them with a Rose and it looked so sophisticated. Yes indeed?

Another best find was the Sticky Icky Wings. We ordered them well done.You don’t want where the skin is not crispy. Off the chart. The trick…Well Done; Crispy.

Matt’s Fish Camp is very generous with the food they offer. A lot can be shared, or take the leftovers.

The Chicken Pot Pie looked delicious. Basically, a traditional homemade pot pie filling with a Cheddar Biscuit. Just imagine, a rainy Saturday called for this yummy dish.

A Lobster Cobb Salad with Green Goddess Dressing??

Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Gravy, pretty much always on the menu. Large enough to share. There was a beautiful biscuit and someone ordered mashed potatoes, as well.

I forgot to take a photo of my Cobb Salad but I can tell you it was very good.

We enjoyed our outing celebrating Sophia’s participation in the Mary Poppins play at Cape Henlopen High School. ❤️

Finally the sun has come out. Have a great day.?

The Feast of the Seven Fishes, Christmas Tradition, The Room at Cedar Grove, Lewes, Delaware, Paul Cullen, Delaware Beaches

Food serves as a way for people to come together. That’s how I ended my post last year when attending for the first time The Feast of the Seven Fishes at The Room at Cedar Grove, 32882 Cedar Grove Rd., Lewes, DE. Paul Cullen, our local culinary celebrity owns this venue, offering concerts, jazz brunch, dinners and a market. Check him out on Social Media.

This was last year’s dinner. Following is this year’s dinner.

The love of food, good wines and making new friends is what brought us together.

The Feast of the Seven Fishes in an Italian American celebration on Christmas Eve. Seafood is served with 7 different dishes offered.

The Room at Cedar Grove is intimate. Here is the menu.

Salmon and Caviar was the first course served with Prosecco.

Second Course was Baccala on Garlic Ciabatta. Served with Arneis. This is a well known dish; salted cod, reflecting the customs of the then impoverished regions of southern Italy.

The third course was Speck Wrapped Scallops also served with Arneis wine. Speck is a type of cured lightly smoked ham, from the northeast of Italy.

The Fourth course was Lobster Bisque served with a Chardonnay. Delicious.

The Fifth Course was Shrimp Scampi served with a Rose. It was served over a polenta cake, lemon butter wine sauce.

The Sixth course was a Flounder Francaise served with a Rose/Barbera. The flounder was egg battered pan fried.

Paul proceeded to give us a concert as we had our Strawberry Panna Cotta with Moscato. Yummy ending with chopped strawberries and fresh mint.

Good food, wines, music and new people….Christmas and a new year upon us.

Happy New Year. ?

Harbour Restaurant, Canal Square, Lewes, Delaware, Review, Outdoor Dining, Canalfront, Southern Delaware, Delaware Beaches

Taking an opportunity of a gorgeous day we went for an early dinner to Harbour at Canal Square located at 134 W Market St., Lewes. Tel. 302-200-9500. It opens Wednesday-Sunday. Lunch Friday and Saturday and Brunch on Sunday. Please check:

I want their Gazpacho recipe, topped with shrimp. Truly delicious on a summer day.

Crab cakes for me. I would have them again for sure. No fillers and how great tasting they were.

The scallops were a hit. Look how beautiful they were.

Desserts were tempting and we did have them. For me I am a fan of Creme Brûlée.

And a Flourless Chocolate Cake??

Loved it when after dinner I thought that I could not wait to come back.

Always so picturesque in Lewes and Canalfront dining cannot be beat.

Great service as usual?

Have a great week. AboutMyBeaches is on FB and Instagram. Check us out?

Agave, Mexican Restaurant, Bethany Blues, Restaurant, Music Venue, Lewes, Delaware, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

Out and About Friday night. Not the best weather. Checking out what’s going on in Lewes. Great to see people walking regardless of the weather.

First stop? Agave located at 137 2nd St. This is, actually, Main Street in Lewes.

Agave has been in Lewes for many years and this is the first location and my personal favorite. There is background music, people are talking. It is cozy and fun. Favorite spot to take a seat is the bar. Lots of action there. It is a busy place. They open at lunch.

Two favorite drinks I truly love here. The Avocado Martini, and their traditional Margarita. Salt too please.

Tonight I chose their original margarita. It is so good.

It goes great with my Avocado and Mango Salad with some skirt steak to make it a full dinner.

Tommy decided to get a Pomegranate Margarita to accompany his Guacamole. They do make the best guacamole in town.

Have you had their Puffy Tacos? The tacos become puffy when the corn tortilla is deep fried. The water in the masa expands. I like them.

Tommy’s Puffy Fish Tacos were very good and doggie bag was requested. And there is his Pomegranate Margarita ?

Completely satisfied we continued on our Friday stroll.

People scream for Ice cream. There was a line for Kings Ice Cream. There is always one.

Next Stop? Bethany Blues on Coastal Highway. Great music this weekend. The venue for live music is perfect. Last night two bands but tonight starting at 8:30 is Roger Girke and The Wondering Souls. You can eat, drink and dance all in one place.

Have fun whatever you are doing. Relax, you are at the beach. Slow down and enjoy the moment.

Ice Cream, Hopkins Farm Creamery, A Basil Surprise, Lewes, Delaware, Delaware Beaches

I Scream for Ice Cream. I love it year round. Hopkins Farm Creamery has so many flavors. It is located at 18186 Dairy Farm Rd. In Lewes, DE. It is right on Rt 9. That’s the road that takes you to Georgetown. You can’t miss it.

A couple of weeks ago the annual event to raise funds for Meals on Wheels took place at Ivy in Dewey. This is a competition where guests go by the tables of local restaurants and taste and vote for favorites. It is a fun night raising money for a good cause.

I shared on my AboutMyBeaches some of my favorites but this particular best on my book was the garnish. Yes, you heard it right. How could a garnish capture someone’s intensity so much?

Hopkins Farm Creamery had its table, sign and all.

And the delicious ice cream to taste.

Here comes the part that captured my attention. Do you see the garnish? You could eat. It was crispy, sweet with that delicious basil leave.

I was not the only one talking about it. This is what they told me. You make an egg wash with egg white and brush it on both sides of the basil leave. Then, sprinkle heavily with granulated sugar and let it dry at room temperature.

I lined a cookie sheet with waxed paper then on a plate put the sugar in order to heavily coat the leave on both sides. I let it sit until I could tell it was dry. It came out perfectly. Check it out.

Perfect as a garnish when you want your guest to say I Want The Recipe.

I then saved them overnight but that’s all they lasted. Better make them the day of.

Check out their website to see what’s going on at the creamery. Remember AboutMyBeaches is on FB and Instagram.

Have a great day?

The Feast of the Seven Fishes, Christmas Tradition, The Room at Cedar Grove, Lewes, Delaware, Paul Cullen, Delaware Beaches

Many traditions during the Holidays and a favorite is visiting Longwood Gardens. It gets you in the Christmas Spirit.

I am originally from Puerto Rico and they celebrate Christmas and Three Kings Day. Typical foods like roasting pig and blood sausages. Hey, I know what you are thinking but let me tell you they are good.


One tradition that I had heard was The Feast of the Seven Fishes. I have never attended such a feast. In Italian it is called Festa dei Sette Pesci. It is held in many Italian/American households prior to Christmas Eve.

Our local celebrity, Paul Cullen, was celebrating The Feast of the Seven Fishes at The Room at Cedar Grove located at 32882 Cedar Grove Rd., Lewes, DE. This event venue owned by Paul holds concerts, dinners, and a market. Check him on all Social Media. Or http://Www.paulcullen.rocks

Look at our table. So much fun. Bonnie, Paul’s wife, at the head of the table while Paul, Nina and the rest helped with our feast. Great way to meet new people, that’s a given.

And what did we all have in common? A love for food. All were foodies, passionate for interesting offerings. We were ready ?

The starter was Baccola or Cod. Deliciously salty.

All dishes were accompanied by a wine that would complement our food.

Our second dish was baked clams.

Our third dish was fish.

Our fourth dish was pasta with shrimp. This pasta was excellent, so much so I forgot to take a photo. This photo was taken by Minnie Waters Shorter.

Our fifth dish was scallops over creamy polenta. very good, as well.

Our 6 dish was the meatballs or I should say fishballs. Paul said it was his traditional meatball recipe made with fish instead.

Our last dish was a chocolate mousse with a dessert wine as Paul serenaded us with a private concert.


It was a lively bunch at dinner. No loss for conversation. Laughter, stories of travels, the foods we love.

Food serves as a way for people to come together. That’s exactly what we did at Paul’s Kitchen & Cullen-ary Company.

Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year.
